Who would turn down an invitation on a sunny smooth morning to visit one of the highest peaks of the famous Mount Corvatsch at an estimated height of 3300meters above sea level.

Heading up is a smooth and exciting ride with a pretty big and stable gondola lift with an amazing view over the lake not long after the departure. Temperature increases and the Clouds appear closer, the views are stunning and its definitely a must do, when visiting lake Silvaplana.

As the day got hotter, the thermal winds started to fill in on the lake, but it took some time, because some of the first  slalom heats got cancelled several times until conditions became suitable enough for some exciting racing.
